Using CentOS Stream 8 with Advanced Virtualization, as Peter
suggested, is a good way to get access to relatively fresh packages.

Right now, that would net you libvirt 7.6.0 and QEMU 6.0.0, which are
just a few months old and should allow you to set up virtiofs.

If at all possible, I recommend using binary packages instead of
building libvirt from scratch. It just makes everything so much

If you really want to build from source, have a look at the
Dockerfiles in ci/containers: there's one for Ubuntu 20.04, and it
includes the full list of packages you need to install in order to
satisfy all build dependencies.
